Application Note: DNA Extraction from Low Cell Number K‐Ras G12D FFPE Samples
13 April 2012

Isolation of genomic DNA from formalin fixed paraffin embedded (FFPE) tissues is a critical step for molecular diagnostic (MDx) assays. This application note describes how Horizon Diagnostics generated a custom FFPE cell line block to investigate the most appropriate DNA extraction kit for recovering the optimum DNA yield and concentration from low cell numbers.
